Meet Hiral, 21, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia

Meet Hiral, 21, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia

My name is Hiral.I am 22 years old, and I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at 21.

I was working as a room leader in a nursery when I was diagnosed with Leukaemia. I was extremely devastated as I had worked so hard to become a room leader and because of my diagnosis, I wasn’t able to continue.

I had to start my treatment and let go of work.

The biggest struggles I have had with cancer is staying strong and continuing each day, trying to stay positive. I struggle knowing that my life will never be the same ever again, and the biggest struggle is the thought of dying which constantly plays on my mind.

I’m on maintenance now which is part of my treatment until November 2020.

Teens Unite has played a vital role in my journey and without them I’d be really lost.

All the staff are very caring and supportive and go above and beyond to make sure I have everything I need or want to do.

They’re always organising events in order for us to socialise and fill our journeys with positive memories, laughter and most importantly making us feel like humans again.
